Never Late, Never Away Chapter 2442

“Everything’s fine, but I still need more time to complete it,” Larry answered.

“I see,” Joan replied.

Larry could sense Joan’s sadness and helplessness over the phone, and he instantly felt guilty.

“How are you today? Are you unhappy?” Larry asked directly.

“Nope, I’m fine. By the way, I have some good news to share with you. Caspian and Jessica are dating! But they are keeping it as a secret for now,” Joan said excitedly.

Hearing that, Larry was still as composed as ever. After all, he had guessed that Jessica would end up with Caspian sooner or later.

“Do you miss me?” Larry blurted suddenly.

Joan froze, not knowing what she ought to reply.

Of course I miss him! I even dreamt about him when I was sleeping. Alas, he isn’t by my side now.

“I do, but you have to finish your work first before coming home,” Joan replied hurriedly.

Larry was greatly comforted by her answer, and his lips curled into a grin. She truly understands me!

“Sure, I’ll be right back once I’ve finished everything,” Larry replied.

They chatted for a little longer before ending the call. As Joan gazed at the crescent moon from the window, her mind wandered into deep thoughts.

“Joan, let’s eat some fruits!” Delilah called out suddenly.

“Alright,” Joan replied.

“Mom, what’s wrong? Are you feeling down? Do you miss Dad?” Lucius asked from the couch he was sitting on.

Why does this kid know everything? Joan took the boy into her arms, tapped on his forehead lightly, and smiled.

“You really know everything. Come and have some fruits.” She picked up a piece of apple and stuffed it into his mouth.

“Well, I know a lot because I observe a lot of things. By the way, a boy in my class is fond of a girl. They always go home together after school…” Lucius said blandly.

Joan and Delilah had the urge to laugh upon hearing it.

My gosh, they’re just kids, and yet, they are in a relationship already? I guess the era has changed now, huh.

“Well, what about you? Any girl caught your fancy?” Joan probed.

“Me? Of course not! I aspire to be a scientist when I grow up! I don’t have the time to think about this kind of thing!” Lucius exclaimed as though he was worried that they wouldn’t believe him.

The two adults were relieved to hear that. Although they believed that Lucius was a good student in school, that doesn’t mean that he wasn’t pestered by girls at school.

“That being said, there is a girl who always plays with me, and she’s rather pretty…” Lucius hesitated.

“Larry, when will you be back?” Caspian asked hurriedly over the phone.

Since it had been a long time, he was worried that something untoward would happen to Larry when he was abroad. Given that the situation abroad was way more complicated, Caspian understood that it wouldn’t be easy for Larry to solve the problems.

“I still need some time,” Larry answered.

Indeed, the problem turned out to be way more complex than what Larry had imagined.

“Larry, you must tell me if you’re facing any trouble, okay? Joan and I are worried about you.”

“Alright, I get it. I’ve got to get going now.” With that, Larry hung up the phone.

In truth, Larry was a little anxious lately. He initially thought that he could solve all problems within several days. He never expected that the overseas manufacturer, Mr. Lancaster, had disappeared. Everyone said that he had escaped, but Larry didn’t believe the rumors.

“Young man, you should go home. He’s not coming back,” an old man came up to Larry and persuaded him.

“Since it has come to this, he would only be asking for punishment if he comes back,” he added.
